## Postdoctoral research position in the theory of modern quantum algorithms

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in the theory of modern quantum algorithms. The position will be held at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech), Moscow, Russia. The start date is flexible but we would like to fill these position(s) as soon as possible. The successful applicant will work in the research laboratory structure led by Prof Jacob Biamonte in the general area of quantum computation, with a focus on quantum enhanced algorithms and error mitigation on experimental devices. The overarching project goals include: Develop, optimize, and benchmark variational quantum algorithms (e.g. QAOA and VQE) Implement quantum information processing tasks using trapped ions and optical networks available[…]
